  • From 1966 to 1971, Mr Jones Griffiths reported on the Vietnam war, publishing a photojournalism book focused on the suffering of civilians.
    Vietnam Inc galvanised the anti-war movement in the United States and helped to turn public opinion against the war.
    It is now hailed as a classic of photojournalism.

    In an interview with the BBC news website published in 2005, Mr Jones Griffiths said: “The only thing we photographers really want more than life, more than sex, more than anything, is to be invisible.”
